Since the lastest update on my laptop, I find that the memory use is VERY excessive, up to 88% according to Activity Monitor. I've had to Force Quite PathFinder to regain control.

    Hi Albert, 

    Thank you for attaching the sample. 

    Please choose a .txt file, open Preview module preferences (gear button next to its header) and uncheck "Colorize syntax". 

    Also, it may be worth trying restore defaults for View Settings (cmd+J).
    Make sure to have "Calculate all sizes" unchecked here. 

    Sorry for the inconvenience. Please feel free to write us back and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,
    Jordan

    Your system forced me to start a new subject. I've uploaded both the txt
    file and a PNG showing how I can't follow your recommendations.

    Hi Albert,

    Unfortunately, I'm missing the files you mentioned on my side. 
    May I ask you to attach them once again?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Hi Albert,

    Were you able to disable "Calculate all sizes"?
